Following his success as a Cold War Canberra pilot, Mike Brooke was dispatched to become a flying instructor at the Central Flying School in the 1970s. ‘Follow him through’, as he would instruct his trainees, as he experiences the quite literal ups and downs of teaching the Glasgow and Strathclyde Air Squadron. Learn how he battled the diminutive de Havilland Chipmunk in order to teach others how to fly the aircraft, then finally moved to instructing on the Canberra in its many marks. Here Mike takes the reader on a quite often bumpy journey as an instructor of pilots old and new. There are tales of flying, near accidents and less serious incidents that flying these old but still demanding aircraft bring. Following on from his debut book, A Bucket of Sunshine, he continues to use his personal experience to bring aviation to life and prove indispensable for any aviation enthusiast.
